Strike averted at 3 HCA hospitals after union reaches contract settlement

A pending strike at HCA hospitals in Southern and Northern California has been averted as healthcare workers and management reached a contract settlement Thursday, May 18.

At least 3,000 workers voted May 12 to launch a five-day strike beginning May 22 at Los Robles Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, West Hills Hospital, Riverside Community Hospital and two hospitals in San Jose.

The employees represented by SEIU-UHW include emergency room technicians, nursing assistants, respiratory therapists, lab techs, dieticians, pharmacy techs and cooks.

The contract settlement includes 15% raises over three years and preserves healthcare and education benefits for workers.

A vote to ratify the contract is slated for late May.
